MOVE THAT BAR - DONATE!
Sit, Stay, Read! is an Animal-Assisted Education program where struggling students read aloud, on a weekly basis, to nonjudgmental furry friends and their caring handlers virtually via ZOOM. It is an effective tool that boosts literacy skills, increase comprehension, and improves attitudes about reading.
Early success in reading translates into a lifelong love of learning.
Studies show that if a child falls behind in reading comprehension and communication skills in early-learning environments he or she will rarely catch up. Sit, Stay, Read! empowers children to reach their full potential by providing incentives and support to educators who are working with challenged readers.
